Our job-matching platform enables you to promote your quality co-ops, internships and other temporary positions to our student community all year round. Students apply directly to employers to ensure a streamlined application process.
We provide access to best practice guidelines and other employer resources to support engagement of people managers and the development of meaningful student work opportunities.
Through academic partnerships and outreach campaigns we market opportunities to students in target fields, including science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, who may not currently consider the Financial Services sector as a career destination.
All ASPIRE students have access to business skills development resources including videos, articles and, location-dependent, facilitated networking events to help support their transition and integration into the workplace.
Employers are invited to participate in on-campus events and social media campaigns to help showcase the diverse nature of opportunities in Financial Services and highlight the sector’s innovation, emerging trends and future opportunities.
Strong partnerships between employers and academic institutions ensure our next generation can compete and succeed. Participate in feedback forums to evaluate the program, share best practices, and influence student learning outcomes and curriculum.
